November 26/2010

(Sibur) -- A column for the separation of propane-propylene fraction with a height of 96 meters and weight of 1095 tons was installed in Tobolsk-Polymer site.

"The column is the heart of the propane dehydrogenation plant," said Dmitry Fomin, the director of capital construction at Tobolsk-Polymer.

According to Alfredo Errico, the engineer from the contractor Tecnimont (Italy), assembling the almost 100-meter column was a unique operation. The installation of the column lasted 6 hours. Despite the weather, the operation went ahead without problems.

Sibur project "Tobolsk-Polymer" Ц a planned complex for polypropylene production with a capacity of 500 thousand tons per year. Completion of the construction of the propylene installation is scheduled for the second half of 2012.

The project will significantly increase processing of associated gas, which will have a positive impact on the ecological situation in the region. Furthermore, according to various estimates, up to one million tons of polypropylene Ц the plastic with the third highest consumption in the world after polyethylene and PVC Ц is imported into Russia in the form of finished products. The new production will meet the continually increasing demand for polypropylene and for the finished products manufactured from it.
